It was a rough trip back to USA on Nov. 1, actually a 48 hour day, since went across the International Dateline. We had a long wait in the Sydney airport and the plane was delayed by mechanical problems and barely made it by the 11 pm curfew for takeoff.
We are staying at the Ohana East in Waikiki, a very nice hotel with a great room. Hawaii’s prices are still higher than in CA, but a better than in Australia! Last night we did our favorite Ali’i KaiSunset Cruise and today we were able to attend a Royal Hawaiian Band concert in downtown Hololulu. This band is always awesome and we have heard them several times through the last 4 decades.
We’ve had a great trip, but as always look forward to home on Sunday and seeing our friends again. Meanwhile, we are hanging loose in HI! Cheryl and Jim
